I'd still double down on late Dec/early Jan on TOL's. Seems exactly like last year's timeline. Either way it doesn't matter, in the end, you either get one or you don't.
TOLS are great and all but you guys still have to go through some of the longest parts yet right? Physical, MMPO, background check and THEN wait for academy dates.... right? Sorry last time I went through this process was awhile ago and I dont really remember.

Definitely a very long process, but it's not that bad compared to other federal jobs. Seems like most here went to the academy within a year of their TOL. I know people in process with places like NSA, CIA, and FBI who would kill their mother to get a process that fast. Longest I've ever heard between TOL and FOL was over five years (CIA). A year or so is child's play.

God, I can’t wait until I’m 100% in the door so I can drop out of college, tell my job to suck it, and buy a pure bred dog named Toby.
Can confirm, it’s feels great. Don’t burn bridges though. Connections are always nice, and someone has to send you your tax stuff. Not enrolling for another semester was a HUGE relief. The dog will come when I certify and get a house lol.
